Sarasota Beach reopened today. Kinda. No parking but folk are allowed to stroll around on it.

How about a tacked thread were folk can report reopenings?

As a start,
Jacksonville beach is open, kinda. Same as above.

The government in this State is a joke, from the silly beach closings, to the defective unemployment system. Time to open everything up bozos.

DeSantis has been a pretty poor leader in my opinion. Seems like he’s waiting for his daddy Trump to tell him what to do. His task for is a joke, now they are taking public comment. Open the friggin’ businesses, if people don’t want to go out, open, whatever, then fine. This sham has gone on long enough.

Palm Beach Co. just reopened boating, golf, natural areas, parks (some things in parks closed like playgrounds), community pools and tennis.

Was actually kind of surprised they moved to start reopening now. Being such a dim stronghold, I figured they’d follow the typical playbook of holding onto as much control for as long as possible.

I happened to have a (friendly, in a store) talk with pinellas county sheriff's, who said that so long as people are maintaining distance,  they aren't stopping anyone from swimming at the beach.

Now, given the nature of my job, I'm not willing to risk a misdemeanor incident to see if they were being honest,  but it was interesting.  That said, word on the street is that the beach/pool reopening will happen this week.. fingers crossed on that.

Closing beaches was the dumbest thing ever, not that i think anything should have been closed...

As someone that has been on Jax Beach multiple times recently, I can tell you that it is crowded as hell,people are sunbathing, surfing, swimming, playing volleyball and every other normal beach activity is going on.

For all intent and purposes Jacksonville is already open minus sitting in a bar/restaurant and getting a haircut

Media induced panic over a politically weaponized average virus.  DeSantis’biggest blunder was letting local Gauleiters set the rules.  The Alachua County nazis have all but killed the economy.

Escambia/Pensacola will open the beaches on May1. 30min before sunrise until 30min after sunset, only rule is that you cannot loiter under the fishing pier, the practice social distancing and no large groups are still in effect.

Some business will be open (hair, nails, etc.) The rest are up to the Gov. The County Commission (a larger group of dildos you won’t find) was getting a lot of pushback and people were starting to say “fuck it.” Businesses were threatening to open back up, not bars and such, because they are more heavily regulated.

Be nice for them to open parking.

The boomers on the cocoa facebook don't want us "on their beach".

How about they don't take "our tax dollars" when a hurricane buttfucks their house next time?

Mistake if he leaves it to the counties. But this is likley going to make personal injury attorneys rich beyond their wildest dreams and bankrupt businesses with lawsuits.

He already has, he still does, and he will continue to lead from behind.

DeSantis has not thrilled me with his leadership lately, but then I have to consider what things would be looking like had Gillum won.  That would have been a nightmare

Various state parks are open now. Myakka is open for day type stuff but not everything yet.
They should be completely/almost completely on the 16th.

The boomers are the reason those ridiculous hall-monitor "beach ranger" positions exist. Their sole purpose is to walk the beach and tell people they can't do such and such. If you don't want to comply with an old man yelling at a cloud, they call in the real police with their radio.

State parks were opening on the 16th. I had reservations and they took my money. Guess what. Now I get told "Sorry, we were just kidding, we are really opening on the 20th."
I am sure they really mean it this time.
Oh yeah, Manatee county beaches and parking are open again.

Places that serve food and had a bar got slammed, you’d see 10% of the people actually eating. So, owners of strictly bars started snitching* and alcohol control would show up and tell them to knock it off, remove the seating from the bar**

*instead of you know, raising hell with the government.  

**because it is so efficient to serve one person at a table meant for four or more people.

All panhandle rentals open, effective immediately.

A bar here announced they will open on the 21st. Should be interesting to see how this plays out.

I have a friend who is a civil attorney, he is jonesing at the lawsuits. He thinks this is all illegal, he’s not some half ass bs lawyer either, he works for a major firm.

Seeing a lot more businesses back open in Pinellas Cty, with shoopers in store.

I suspect a lot of people said “screwit, I’m reopening.”

The funny thing is all I "Hear" about in the media is how the majority of people are "hesitant" or "angry" or "worried" about reopening.

This doesn't jive with what I've seen in stores or at restaurants. Places are slammed!

What the real world says and these LEFT WING SOCIALIST NEWS MEDIAS say never do seem to be the samething.

It's as if there are two different worlds. Theirs and ours.

What scares me more than anything is the contract tracing the Democratic left wing socialist extremists and other eninities are pushing now as a condition to opening the U.S. back up.

We never should have been shut down in the first place. The data keeps changing daily.

First mask do not work, now they want everyone to wear anything even if it does nothing.

Before isolate now that was a bad idea.

Before it spread on surfaces for a long time. Now it doesn't.

Now they want to use this made up emergency to take away CIVIL liberties. To use it to access private medical records and track you 24/7 and have contact tracers harass you. Plus also talking of forcing people to get immunized for COVID. All for the good of the people.

Like anything the government ever get's their slimy fingers in ever works and is never abused and used against the American people.

What are they going to do shoot those people that refuse to get the shot for COVID. Lock them up in jail. Issue a ID showing you got the COVID shot in order to do business or buy anything or leave your house.

The DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST EXTREMISTS are earning that title during this never let an emergency go to waste episode.

It is sad that everything you outline there really is the truth. I pray, especially for my daughters future, that we can walk this crap back, and regain some sanity in this mess. The unprecedented power grab is frightening, and i can never imagine our founders would have been ok with things going on.

I really regret how I viewed all this going into the mess, though i am glad i limited to myself stocking up on supplies incase things got bad.  But now i voice my opinion against all the bullshit. Yes, put measures in place to protect elderly and vulnerable, offer extra services, even put money towards it.  But let the rest of us knuckle up, and get through it. We will take our licks, keep going if we have the chance.. give us the chance.

Just look right now at Michigan and what's happening there. Look at the attacks against churches. All being done by L.E. AGENCIES at the direction of their SOCIALIST NAZI EXTREMISTS LEADERS.

In some states L.E. AGENCIES have used their heads and when sent after business refused to cite them because they were practicing safe habits. They went against their NAZI EXTREMISTS LEADERS.

I've been telling friends and family for weeks. If we can go into Wal-Mart, THE HOME DEPOT, grocery stores and any other large store. Bump elbows touch everything in the store ect.

WHY are these SOCIALIST NAZI EXTREMISTS controlled states shutting down churches.

That can be be way better controlled than these stores.

One state can't remember which. Has said bars can have 10 customers inside and 50 customers outside. A BAR NOW.  But churches no matter how big. Are limited to 10 inside and or 10 outside.

Let see bars 50 outside and churches 10 outside. If not followed guess who shows up and starts writing citations and fines at the houses of worship.  

I wonder if these DEMOCRATIC NAZI EXTREMISTS controlled states are attacking religious freedoms.

That again is another right protected under the Bill of Rights. In retribution because the religious community primarily supported the POTUS.

Remember this, when they compare churches to stores and other business. That can't do that constitutionally because religion is protected under the 1st Admendment.

What was one of the first thing Hitler under a SOCIALIST guise do when he gain power.

Go after and attack religious freedom. Basically shut it down. The same exact thing these so called DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST EXTREMISTS PARTY is doing.

After seeing what has happened the past three years with one COUP attempt after another. Then this seizure of CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS under the guise of a um....emergency.

That seems to be proven not so much of a emergency every day. Because the CDC we discovered has been playing with the numbers. By instructing doctors what to mark as the cause of death.

Plus people with the antibody in their blood. The CDC had been counting them as new cases of infection to raise the number of infected.

All to maybe create a pandemic where one does not exist. To give a certain party a way to illegally seize power from the people. Now that's just an opinion based upon what I've read.

But one thing that is not an opinion. WE THE PEOPLE are allowing the illegal seizure and violation of our Constitutional Rights. We can stop it if we just say NO enough is enough.

It would not surprise me if the CDC created this to gain self worth and an influx of cash into the CDC. The CDC has become political on behalf of the DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST EXTREMISTS PARTY.

If this party gains power nationally. This nation is in terrible danger.

The GOVERNORS of Mich, Illinois, Washington and a few other states. They are drunk with power. Especially that Mich governor.

Want to see what AMERICA would look like under the DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST EXTREMISTS PARTY'S control. Just look at these states.
